Karaoke

In Fall 2018 I discovered that I enjoy a certain kind of bar-style karaoke: Karaoke Underground specializes in tracks from somewhat obscure indie and punk artists, though there are a fair number of more popular jams. See here for the slowly growing song list. Below, I list the songs I have sung by date in chronological order.
